or is on our t.v. the u.n. nuclear watchdog reports that iran it could be working on atomic weapons and raising worries its findings might be a pretext for a preemptive strike against iraq. as the financial fall of grown looms closer the previously politically bulletproof here bill or school and finally agrees to go but probably costs soar to a dangerous level. and a lengthy standoff in northern kossovo between serbs and nato back because of a police finally draw un attention all the locals branded their barricades into the scenery this is part of everyday life.
three pm here in the russian capital this is r.t. now our top story in a major public speech iran's president insisted his country won't retreat one iota from its nuclear program mahmoud ahmadinejad slab the international nuclear watchdog newly released report suggesting terror on might be close to developing atomic weapons it's five weeks came days after israel rightly considered military action against iran raising fears the report could be a pretext to want to attack our days gainey has more now of your tummy study. now the u.n. nuclear watchdog found no smoking gun but hyped up fears that iran continues research on nuclear weapons it doesn't say iran is building a weapon but it says it's collecting all the information it needs to sell and has a lot of technology the international atomic energy agency claims to have iranian computer models of nuclear warheads which the watchdog uses
a possible indication that you ran plans to build an atomic bomb among other evidence as satellite image of a steel container that might be used to secretly cast the high explosives needed to trigger and you clear wacking i would be very skeptical about this report that's coming out from the international atomic energy agency because the i.a.e.a. doesn't really have any intelligence capabilities of its own and if it's relying on reports that are coming from other people i would rather suspect those reports are coming from the united states and israel the president if u.s. intelligence presenting false evidence to build a case for the war in iraq raises alarm bells us to the accuracy of the atomic agency's latest report on iran's you may have a piece of evidence of some kind but that piece of evidence is subject to your interpretation as to what it means when they saw aerial photo photographs in iraq showing certain things they interpreted those photographs to mean something which which was it was not correct back in two thousand and three the u.s.
was adamant it's evidence on iraq's weapons of mass destruction and carries the t.v. was as solid as could be satellite images of a base where saddam hussein was believed to train al qaida terrorists evidence of more while labs for biological weapons aluminum tubes presented as components of centrifuges to enrich uranium all of the above proved to be a hoax. and yet it was enough to start a war that would last eight plus years and kill more than a hundred thousand civilians israel is considering military action to take out iran's nuclear facilities preemptively the question may now ask is could the un's atomic watchdog group board serve as a justification to start a war with iran security experts say the consequences for such action would be catastrophic we would most likely see new kinds of attacks probably on israel from
hezbollah or other groups we'd see attacks on american troops perhaps in iraq and afghanistan even more than what we've seen so far iran and could retaliate in conventional terms that could attack saudi arabian oil fields if you really want to see a crisis in the air in the international economy this spike tough rhetoric coming from both israel and the u.s. many agree that washington and tel aviv are most likely to use the record as political leverage to try and isolate iran and possibly to put advantage needs flourishing economic relations with china no one in the international community wants iran to have nuclear weapons but what they hear is addressed unilateral action by israel with the backing of the united states that could set the region on fire at a time when it is as on stable as it puts millions of lives could be in danger if policymakers in washington or tel aviv decide to jump the gun and start a war on grounds which are far from being transparent i'm going to check our
reporting from washington our team. political analyst syrian so good she believes iran has never been the danger it's been portrayed. past hundred years iran has invaded and attacked nobody it has however been invaded by britain world war one by britain and the former soviet union in world war two in one thousand nine hundred one to grab its oil when its democratically elected president mohamed must have big nationalized the iranian oil company which is a british petroleum the cia backed coup got rid of him imposed the shah of courtesy of popularity until nine hundred seventy nine and one nine hundred seventy nine iran recovers its own identity immediately once saddam hussein i think we all remember him was in the service of the united states britain and israel with chemical weapons of mass destruction provided by the united states to lead an eight year war of attrition against iran so if anything one has to ask who is the danger
in the region the united states britain france and israel or iran who has invaded and attacked nobody in a century. well you want to know how close you think a military strike against iran and now is and so far the majority things that attack is imminent as it runs along with american and israeli interests sixty percent doubt it arguing that no one wants to see a bloodbath in the region time for something the whole thing still the grounds of terror as well and must cooperate all slightly fewer think there will be a military strike only if iran actually admits having a nuclear bomb and you have your choice now or go on the home page of our tweet dot com. well a former cia officer who once head of the osama bin ladin intelligence unit says america's policies of the muslim world it creates enemies rather than security we'll hear some of what michael shear will tell us in the next hour. washington's enemy is an enemy that doesn't exist we're fighting and in the stomach enemy that
washington believes is out to last because we have elections because we're free because we have with workplace there's an enemy that doesn't exist in exist when bin laden was alive it doesn't exist now america is being attacked because of its foreign policy in the in the from the world because of its support for israel because of its support for the saudi police state because of its presence on the your opponents and until we accept that until americans can say to each other whether you support aid to israel or not our relationship with israel is causing this war we are not going to be able to defeat this enemy. let's time's up for the man who's dominated italian politics for the best part of two decades but it's not a mountain of corruption lawsuits and sex crime allegations that did it for prime minister silvio berlusconi it's actually italy's war for finances here's what's already evaporated is that he's passed at least money to spending
a key vote to decide the next budget cuts which will be voted on that next week italy is europe's next financial worry it's boring. costed reached seven percent of wednesday a level that quit greece portugal and ireland in need of a bailout it's adding fuel to the fears and claiming a berlusconi's political scalp isn't enough to help the country stay for. it's very naive to for political debates just on the sauna i think they're going to have very difficult time and what is required is a serious political debate on what kind of measure it's one to take to tackle the krises it's not so much about school in italian people in caves should water on the sidewalk their replacements should be rather then being done through parliamentary gimmicks i think that you should have stepped down at least one year ago or. been able to survive just because of the corruption and bribery entirely in parliament
and saw widespread that these has been possible but honestly i think that's what is required is serious change and serious change just through going back to the people and asking them what. should be. and eyes are already looking east for the international monetary fund search to shore up cash with a warning we face a lost decade because of europe steps the guards following our fund raising visit to russia with a trip to china which is expected to rule beijing's backing for the european bailout economists there are say china is ready to give a helping hand but on its own terms. the initial objective is really how china work more closely was on math to be the. finance capacity of my math and in the meantime to call for the justifiable position for china both same terms of the membership. also the possible
r. and b. as a denominating car in say a beyond the special drawing rights tunnel still want to express was the rule this meaning positive attitude and sincerity in china will lend a hand but of course china will also have their own conditions to reciprocate themselves but there are growing concern in china over you know how the money is going to be spent i think the government will have to gave the right answer to the chinese people because because their tax dollars the investment should be targeted more to the valuable assets to help an industry is instead a riding a bland check to buy the bonds which is now rather sticky and there has not been the reasonable or for is that the proper return risk of free package as being all for either by the individual country that is facing the problem all by
the eurozone or the whole. over the euro zone currency crisis crossed up later asked if it's time for brussels to butt out and restore power to national governments now here's what's ahead twenty minutes. if released last week were to have voted in a referendum order to have passed over and i left the choice to the group citizens that would have meant that the greece greek citizens would have got a veto on focus on economic governance within the euro zone which is almost unheard of but it's a good thing of this crisis let's say but you see we are clearly moving there's a reckoning also literally although these are lies you see the engineers say they're easier to losing their jobs there's a good side to this crisis. that is still going we know it's a done deal there and there's only because it's on the streets people will know and you say there's a good thing to these crises. so i have for you this hour an hour to russia's first interplanetary mission in teen
years we'll tell you why this program is to dig the dirt on the market who told us once crowd control itself a post-launch glitch. also by india's government believes these people are no longer poor enough to get the help that millions of that still need plus. and from our business desk western europe is getting its first gas from russia vibing you rebuild north stream pipeline that has transit countries during re about ten minutes from now for more details on the significance of the prospect. of the un head has voiced concerns over the increased attacks on minority serbs and their property in northern kossovo part of the blame on the decision of possible albania leadership so extend its control over the serb run area for months now serbs in the region have been barricading and not only against the unwanted authorities but also nato peacekeeping forces. explains.
perhaps not in the this venue for a wedding with this serbian couple living in northern course will decided to get married at the barricades immutable what people are going to be the here and do so i wonder if. this is. a distraction. this year a very caves and northern coast or have been standing for several months now for those who built them there are just a part of everyday life not only have the course of the service isolated themselves from decay for. all stolen from their unwanted neighbors this is the famous bridge . parts it was called the bridge of friendship it was meant to symbolize that that can easily live together but the size of the barricades on the serbian part tells the whole story of how serbs are unwilling to be part of the self-proclaimed state while the cemented barricades in the middle of it so have become the town's main
gathering spot tensions are still running high just a few kilometers. for every sand obstacle the case for troops managed to demolish serbs built two hundred miles there are times when the two pro sisters take place a multimedia slee and an. alibi. like the. serbs say they have no choice but to continue barricading themselves in they believe albanians would not hesitate to wipe them off their land forcefully help they believe by k. four troops despite constant clashes with the nato contingent and political pressure from belgrade because the serbs have become accustomed to living in this cage they have built for themselves. it was hard at first when we run out of food and have trouble but we serbs are people who are used to improvising in
finding a way out we build alternative routes through the mountains so now we can again receive supplies we prevented a humanitarian catastrophe when the order the orthodox priest of the town's brand new temple sat he has never been busier with all the people flocking in lately to pray for the well being of their families is this what is closer to his sin different hard times even being good chucky ones. stereos with stupid old heartiness of times and everyone and nature of it so nice this land is the cradle of the culture and state that. another deadlock in this balkan melting pot continues belgrade is still unwilling to. negotiations with pristina which could put paid to this standoff but while politicians clash this serve family has little trust in diplomacy their kids may be too young to realize what it's all about and why they are being shown the barriers but there is little doubt what views they
will inherit once they grow up looksee russia ski r.t. reporting from cautious commuters in kosovo. now russia has launched an unmanned probe one of marx's moons but its technical trouble it's too to head to for us to try and hurt some secrets about our solar systems creation the russian space agency says there's still time to sort the hitches out peter on the broken explain for us peter what exactly is going on is the mission at risk because of the technical failure well the mission itself is only at risk depending on what kind of technical failure it is now the launch of the. ground actually went off pretty much without a hitch it was shortly after that initial launch that problem started arising at six six g.m.t. the russian space agency announced that there was a problem now it all depends what kind of problem is as i said no if it's a problem with the the software on board the probe then that potentially
can be fixed however if it is a problem with the hardware the actual probe itself could pose to the well that could prove to be the end of this mission pretty much before it even got underway so everybody is hopeful that it turns out that it is a software problem now the russian space agency of set aside two weeks of the race for this crew and to allow them to try and work out what kind of problem it is if it's a problem with the software and try and repair it hopefully they'll be able to do that and the probe will be back pollitz way off towards the red planet to the moon of course i should everything go ahead a spy and what exactly will the crow hope to prove then well this is a. hugely anticipated scientific mission from the russian space agency it's the first time that russia tried to launch something towards was since
nineteen ninety six that one ended with a failure of the launch of the mars ninety six mission actually. went completely wrong and didn't getting to the red planet this time they're hoping to get there to the moon a focus place that's actually been suggested as a potential future settlement for humans they'll be taking soil samples from the surface of the moon they'll also be monitoring the make up of the atmosphere of mars looking down on it from one of its major satellites they'll also be looking at the impact that meteorites and the impact have of the surface of the red planet and considering that we are of course considering the future. settlements on on mars they'll be looking at what actually makes the surface of the red planet now also quite interesting neither be looking the probe is pitted with microorganisms that will be sturdy to determine the effect of three journey there and back three years
it will take a lot of friends that will have on living organisms so that we could see what effect. potential effect the journey to mars and back could have borne us sounds like a lot of work they hope to get done they're going to course this project is just part of russia's bigger push to get it out parsed better isn't it well that's right in the past week we've seen the completion of the mars five hundred program five hundred project of a department right here in moscow six men spending five hundred twenty days in isolation simulating a mission to mars and back now that we've seen is well it was it was labeled as the stepping stone towards the first stepping stone by the scientists of r.'s five hundred project so yes there is the push to try and see if we can reach out and explore beyond the earth and beyond are all put on the international space station
for a long time now there the scientists are hoping and the people in the russian space agency hoping that they can be at the forefront. reaching out going towards new planets and exploring them as well some said one thousand nine hundred six the last time that russia tried to launch anything into well beyond all but that one didn't didn't go right that failed that mission so they'll be hoping that the problem with the. grew and can be put right something that can be fixed and the road can go on get about its mission and get some more get to the moon of mars phobos and retrieve all updates are all right well thank you very much indeed for that archy's peter all of our reporting there. all time for more world news for you now starting in thailand where the floodwaters are finally receding cleaning up is now obviously northern provinces but things are far from over in bangkok where there's a struggle to clear debris that's blocking the capital's drains and floods are
taking a huge toll on thai love over five hundred people have been killed and many thousands displaced rocky firms such as geo to honda and nestlé have seen production and profits drop massively. american presidential hopeful herman cain is defiant about staying in the game despite be increasing sexual harassment claims swirling around him a second woman six now gone public about her alleged assault and she loves all four accusers to come forward cain is a surprise a front runner for the republican nomination to take on president obama money twelve and he denies all the claims. well india says it's now got fewer poor people don't tell the whole story the government there now thinks that less than a dollar a day is enough to get by. experience. i in india's capital city the sights and sounds of one of the world's fastest growing economies are everywhere. but intermingled with the new malls and shopping developments slums
like this one are still home to about forty million people many of the people who live here however go even town is being poor thanks to a new definition that has moved india poverty line thirty eight european per day or thirty eight that romney was works twelve hours six days a week as a cop in me up to two dollars per day he sends most of his money back to his village to support the wife and three children he left behind the fact that his country doesn't classify him as poor is shocking to him but you couldn't thirty june rupees or the benchmark to decide the poverty line is wrong because one cannot do anything with that amount someone like me who makes three thousand rupees per month finds it hard to survive here how could someone who are only thirty two rupees survive the people behind the show say that it's simply an adjustment based on the current economic climate according to them the new definition actually means that there are a lot less people living in poverty in india than twenty years ago when almost half
of all indians were living below the poverty line they also find it has no impact on who can access government welfare services and many people above the poverty line also i mean or it's not as if you know if you're the poverty line you're poor and if you've got one rupee more than the problem you're rich we have a good lot for that and that's what our strategy is but new data also suggests those living in poverty should get by on the equivalent of two dollars per month for their health and education sparking outrage across india where do you feed your family where do you look after your kids where do you send them for education how is not that anywhere close to the poverty line. thirty thirty rupees but oh it's also not good enough we're going to be in a piece like that he does know we it's an identity for now the debate over the poverty line is meaningless in his life he just wants to be able to support his
family. i'm going to get better my only wish for my future is that i continue doing this work of mine without any hindrance from anyone or anything as long as the government doesn't interfere i'll continue doing his business to feed and educate my kids focusing and depending on himself preassure either artsy new delhi india. as hero deaths claim another prime minister crosstalk discussed as a currency on the critical list or that's after we've had a business update with kareena. her welcome to a business out that's all thanks for joining the western europe's getting its first russian gas while the newly built direct nor stream pipeline was in germany i suppressed a little right. this new route should bring cheaper gas for homes and businesses in the european union for the first time there are no transit fees to be paid to countries like ukraine and belarus and also eliminates the threat of supply cuts
which we've seen in recent years actually leaving some e.u. states out in the cold now this is an e.u. wide project there are german shareholders also french dutch as part of this goes from the project and it will guarantee supply to citizens of those countries for the next fifty years or so even through this year's euro dick crisis did more for gas in europe has gone up now this is the pipeline that people said could be built that it was too long too expensive sometimes it was take nickel impossible for example there's only one compressor station along the route once again is that there were several needed to make it happen and now this really has been planned since the ninety's ninety's the second law and will come on top next year project leaders have said that the third line troubling capacity of north stream will be discussed very soon by shareholders. purses largest company gas promise reported eighty percent profits during the second quarter. ten billion dollars during that period beating some forecasts by ten percent the bottom line was given
a lift by increased output and stronger prices to liveries to europe twenty percent this year and our search for a further boost now that the north stream gas network is online it cost more than seven billion dollars and leading russian energy consultant believes it will take a decade to break even the real time off for total this and less well it will be depends on the price on u.s. and european markets because the tragic stories related to reproduce prices in european union but of course it will take on the euros in the west as they must be not anxious about this money away because you know that from one point of view this problem was the main stockholder if not through but from another point of view with the main supply of gas and. all girls. three will go the empty. looking at the markets now first years crude prices a razor early gains light sweet is currently trading under ninety five dollars ninety six dollars per barrel while brant is just
